Halloween 2011

We had a fun Halloween this year. Here are the kids in their costumes before we headed out to the trunk-or-treat:

This is the only picture I have of #2 wearing his ski mask. He was a robber; I convinced him he needed the getaway bag with a dollar sign so people would know what he was up to.

Another shot of all three of them. Kid #1 is "a guy with a mustache" and he made that mustache out of duct tape. And #3 is Rapunzel, of course. Here's another picture of me and her; this time she has her Rapunzel hair on too:

I love how the dress turned out, it was a lot of work but I'm happy with it in the end. (A lot of work like my sewing machine doesn't have a zipper foot and I was going to just sew it in without one but then there was the extra layer of the overskirt and well... I just handsewed the thing. The lace didn't stay in place either so it's all handsewn --tacked really-- down.) Anyway, my little girl loves it, and that helps. I'm glad it fit her right, because I didn't check out the pattern on patternreview.com or measure it beforehand. 

I'm happy that Halloween is over and looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas and moving out of our apartment, next week!

Cute! Funny that he's a "guy with a mustache." One of the kids that went with us looks a lot like Pres. Obama. He didn't dress up (he's 16), but anytime someone asked what his costume was, he'd tell them, "I wanted to be Obama, but I didn't have a suit."

Vicki,

They are so cute. Loved the pictures, #3 is absolutely lovely as Rapunzel. Love the outfit and that she has the dolly with Terri's dress.

Thanks for posting these

G-Pa Tim
